The best SSRI is the one that works.

That sounds dull, but its true -- certain SSRIs will work for certain people and certain will not.

Lexapro across the board is a good recommendation but not everybody will tolerate it. It is the "cleanest" SSRI. Yet it took 20 days for me to overcome the near vomiting I had on it and I gave up on it.

You have to outweigh the side effects vs. benefits of an SSRI.

Prozac and Luvox, the earliest are still in use and help a lot of people too.

Most SSRIs will brush the 5HT3 mechanism to some extent but the body will get used to it. That's what causes nausea, and is usually noticeable at dose changes
